BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Between these four fests, cinephiles and critics will have a chance to preview titles that are sure to be the most talked about of award season. We've sorted through the buzz of Telluride, Venice, TIFF and NYFF to distill what five movies you must see to stay in the conversation this year.
Lots of big name directors earn a sweet payday for a short jaunt of work helming commercials. But can you guess the auteur behind the four new ads for The GAP?
Back in January, David Fincher said something that surprised many fans looking forward to his upcoming adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel Gone Girl. Talking about Flynn's screenplay version of her own book, the director described star Ben Affleck's shock at seeing that the third act had been basically thrown out and then "started from scratch."
The flashier names are familiar to anyone who followed Cannes this year. Bennett Miller's murder mystery Foxcatcher will be a part of the fest, as will Alice Rohrwacher's The Wonders and Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner.
Most of us won't be able to see Gone Girl, the latest film from director David Fincher, until it hits theaters in early October, but now word has come down exactly when the first audience will get to see it. News has come down that the movie is now scheduled to be the opening night feature for the fall's New York Film Festival.
More than anything, Gone Girl looks more and more like a David Fincher drama. The director gravitates to moody police procedurals like Zodiac, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and Se7en, and he has crafted a distinct visual style that is cool and detached and PERFECT for Gone Girl.
Now that we have finally reached the back half of 2014, David Fincher's Gone Girl feels like it's coming up faster than ever. The movie is set to debut in theaters starting in early October (following the release model of The Social Network), and while we've already seen one teaser trailer, the marketing is only now getting ready to switch things into fully gear. 20th Century Fox will be unveiling a brand new trailer for the movie tomorrow, and today we have four fascinating new posters.
Gone Girl tells the story of married couple Nick and Amy Dunne (Ben Affleck, Rosamond Pike). On the morning of their fifth wedding anniversary, it is discovered that Amy has disappeared, and, naturally, the first person to be turned into a suspect is her husband, who has a ton of evidence stacked up against him.
If you somehow haven't gotten around to reading Gillian Flynn's addictive and wildly popular crime novel Gone Girl yet, the latest video teaser summarizes its plot in just 19 seconds. Missing wife. Husband prime suspect. And go!
Two of the most talked about bestselling novels of the past couple of years are soon to get big glossy Hollywood adaptations, and with them scores created by some of the most-sought after composers working today.
It turns out the author herself has created an entirely new ending for the movie version of Gone Girl, which should leave audiences guessing regardless of how many times they've poured over the addictive crime thriller.
Fox shared a first-look photo of Affleck in Fincherís movie. Iím thrilled by the fact that Affleck, coming off of a Best Picture like Argo, gets to push himself in a Fincher movie. The director isnít afraid to test his male actors, getting grisly performances from the likes of ruggedly handsome men like Brad Pitt and Daniel Craig.
There should be a little something for everyone in the coming year. And to help you plan out your movie-watching year, we singled out 14 titles weíre looking forward to in 2014, as well as a list of additional canít-miss movies.
Being adapted by Flynn herself - making her screenwriting debut - the thriller centers on the relationship between Nick and Amy Dunne, a married couple who have hit a rough patch. Moving to a small town in Missouri from New York after Nick loses his job, Amy is miserable away from the big city, but things become scary when she disappears on the couple's fifth wedding anniversary.
20th Century Fox has some big stuff on their upcoming slate, from a new David Fincher film to the story of the Bible, and today they've announced a crop of new release dates for some of their projects.The studio has not only officially dated both Gone Girl and the feature film version of the miniseries The Bible, but has also shifted around both the animated Book of Life and and the James McAvoy/Daniel Radcliffe-starring adaptation of Frankenstein.
